Thankful Tuesday- Pumpkin Decorating

We got to paint our pumpkins tonight. It's a tradition at our house in October. :) It reminded me of the past few years...


and I asked Adam if he thought our little boy would like painting pumpkins. :) I can't wait to meet him!

I enjoyed every second of our family pumpkin painting and I'm thankful to God for giving me a family, a family that I love so much. 

As usual, I have so many thoughts and I'm not sure how to get them all out and into a post. It has been a great and super fun & busy week and it has also been very challenging because I am so big pregnant and still trying to carry on with my normal life feeling like I want to have as much fun with the girlies as I possibly can before Abraham comes and I have to slow down a bit...or a lot. I have not been the nicest person this week; I have been a little grumpy and it has mostly come out in me and Ab's relationship which makes me sad. Ab and me are just so much alike; we but heads the most...well and she is strong willed and I believe she senses I am weak. :) But, I woke up this am extra early to spend some time with the Lord because I knew I wasn't going to make it today without it and poured out my heart to Him about how much I didn't want to be grumpy and how I wanted to love my family especially Annabelle how He wants me to love them and how they need me to love them. I feel like He did give me grace and strength for today. I was not perfect or even close but I felt His strength when I needed it today and for that I am thankful....
